"Nice kit!"
Surprisingly good kit. Parts fit great and the wing struts (usually a pain) were a breeze. Decals were a bit brittle, but with care can be managed. I loved the end product!

"A Sweetheart Build and a Throwback to Early Plastic Modeling"
The SPAD is the nicest of Glencoe's three reworked Aurora WWI kits, and unless you're overwrought on detail and like to fiddle with photo etch, this kit will yield you a very nice SPAD without too much effort. The original kit has eight French and Italian schemes on a very large decal sheet, and a USAEF/RAF version can be had, with another great selection of markings. Either sheet, treat the decals with clear coat before use. And the price, it almost goes without saying, is practically theft by today's standards.

"Spad XII"
Over all this is a very good kit.There is some flash that does need to be cleaned up,and injector marks. The kit itself goes together nice and you have a good pick of markings to use.But if you decide to do the rigging I would suggest getting photos of the real plane off the internet,as there is no rigging diagram really on the instructions .It does build up nice and if you like WWI aircraft models this one fits in nice.

"For Intermediate Builder"
Good instructions. Easy to work on. Have to work on small pieces so patience. The box art is a good representation of the model.
